I’m thankful for the opportunity to work with Oriental Trading company a few times a year and when I spotted their stunning lanterns I knew they would be PERFECT for year-round festive holiday decor!! I chose these black lanterns but you can see all of their available colors and styles of metal lanterns here. They fit just about any thing from rustic to modern and you can fill the inside of the lantern with everything from tea lights to candles or pinecones! I am head over heels for these gorgeous beauties – for the size and price these are a steal! They came VERY well wrapped up. All I had to do was pull them out, insert the glass panels, and place the top on!
Right now I have them filled for fall decor. Oriental Trading sent me this bag of small pine cones which I LOVED because they are small mini-sized pine cones. Not the HUGE ones you get in the store. I did buy some large pine cones to mix into the lantern but the small ones filled up the rest of the space perfectly. I also dropped in some colorful leaves, a handful of colored acorns, and a small potpourri mix to add some extra color.
For Christmas I am going to take out the fall colors and add in silver glittered pine cones with some red decorative berries for a pop of color. I’ll have to add a picture in when I end up switching out my decor throughout the year! It’s going to look so gorgeous on my mantle of “snow”!
